CA profession is very challenging yet in demand. Many people go for this journey on their parent’s demand or because of their friend, which is totally wrong. You should be passionate enough and willing to invest your time in the hardwork it takes. To motivate you for the hardship in the course of chartered accountant studies, I have mentioned two quotes by well known and dignified chartered accountants as below. 

“Very often in our society, people who have achieved success tend to place a premium on being vainglorious and bumptious. It pays, in my view, to be generous and large of heart and mind. Bumptiousness Never pays. “

  –Naina Lal Kidwai

“You should be willing to bang your head against the wall until you find the solution.”

TV Mohandas Pai

Naina Lal Kidwai and TV Mohandas Pai have said very much true in their quotes. Whatever quotes we seek motivation from, are made up of experiences which are hard to acquire at the starting point of any journey.
